Recent drive throughout the southern and northern Bighorn National Forest yielded amazing views of the mountains and wildlife. We were lucky enough to spot 6 moose during our visit. The campgrounds were clean and well kept.

This was a beautiful trip across the Bighorn Mountains. The weather changed rapidly during our trip and we encountered fog and very low clouds over the top but still a beautiful place.

This is a great drive that we did over two days. Driving over the mountains and stopping at the overlooks and viewing wildlife was amazing. We were able to see moose, deer, fox, cranes, went to a wild horse area. Great all the way around.
